Give up the Ghost

It's been a long time since Cass trusted anyone living. To outsiders, she's anti-social, but in reality, you just can't see her friends. A month before her sister died Cass had been going through a rough time with her former BFF. Now the only friends Cass counts are those who people can't normally see. Not only does Cass know all the dirt on people, she sometimes uses it to her advantage. However when one boy in the popular crowd approaches her for help, Cass can't help but become involved. His mother died not that long ago and he's looking for a chance to get in touch with her. at first, Cass thinks he's just another spoiled popular jock, but as she spends more time with him, she comes to know the boy under the mask. Cass realizes he has problems of his own and she might be the only one who can save him. But that would mean showing someone living that she actually cares. Can Cass show her true feelings or will she continue to shut out the world?

This book was different than what I expected - a more paranormal ghost haunting tale when in reality, it's more about the Cass and Matt than the ghosts. Still, it's a great read with an inviting cover. I really enjoyed the storyline. I could see Cass clearly and why she chose to hide herself away from the world. The question of popular vs being yourself was excellently executed and thoroughly entertaining. I look forward to the next book by Megan Crewe.

Thanks for a great review. I'm writing a period ghost story, but it's interesting to see the similarities between this book and my WiP.

I may have to pick it up.

Thanks again!
